Orange Bowl Day 2

Sailors awoke to a nice northeast breeze around 10 knots, a short chop and plenty of warm sunshine.

Race 1 went off on time at 10am as the wind built to 12 or so with some whitecaps.

Race 2 saw the best wind of the day at 12+ knots.

After a 1/2 hour lunch break, the committee ran 2 more races, the last finishing up at 3pm as the breeze backed off down to 5.

Competition was stiff with the South American and USVI sailors showing very strong. Peru, Puerto Rico, Argentina and Ecuador had top 10 finishes in many races.

Most races were started under black flag, as evident by the many BFD's on the score sheet.

The top 10 LISOT sailors after 4 races are:
5 - Antoine Screve
31 - Ian Storck
39 - Declan Whitmyer
42 - Gary Prieto
44 - Megan Grapengeter-Rudnick
52 - Olivia Crane
62 - Elliot Morrill
68 - Charlie Peck
70 - Bryce Kopp
83 - Tracy Doherty

Full results

After racing, over 100 LISOT Opti and 420 sailors and parents had an enjoyable team dinner at Monty's.

Saturday's forecast is for lighter breeze, continued warmth and sun.
